Enhancing capacity is an important facet of empowerment evaluation. This article describes an initiative designed to help public health managers in Ontario improve their knowledge and skills in program evaluation. The initiative involved the development of a self-directed learning resource called the Program Evaluation Tool Kit and an accompanying workshop. The development of the Program Evaluation Tool Kit embraced five principles: taking stock of what was needed, building on shared values, valuing different perspectives, integrating planning and evaluation into routine program management, and maximizing adult learning.
